AceShowbiz - While the first installment of "Star Wars" anthology series "Rogue One" gets underway, some photos from the set of the movie surfaced online. The photos give a look at the stormtroopers, the aircrafts and the filming location.
The images were captured at Elstree studios, where the movie was being filmed. The first image shows the likes of stormtroopers in their iconic white armor. Although the movie will take place before the first installment of the original series, the stormtroopers look much the same as the ones shown in the original trilogy.
The second image shows the filming location which appears to be in the desert or beach area. According to sources, the sets have been recycled from "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" in which the grey landers also made appearance.
"Right now at Pinewood Studios the 'White Vans' are getting a fresh coat of gray paint as they will be reused in the film. The landers appear to be pretty much the same as 40 years before Finn gets in one, it just has slightly different coloring on the outside," a source close to the production of "Rogue One" said back in June.
"Rogue One" will take place between "Episode III" and "Episode IV" when the Jedi are basically extinct. It will follow a rogue band of resistance fighters unite for a daring mission to steal the Death Star plans. Directed by Gareth Edwards, the sci-fi movie is slated for a release on December 16, 2016 in the United States.
